Marietta, GA (PRWEB) September 06, 2011
Abacus Solutions, an IT infrastructure solutions provider, is excited to host two customer-centric events in September.
The first event will be a private suite at the Georgia Dome for the Chick-fil-A kickoff game on September 3rd, featuring Georgia vs. Boise State. Dell EqualLogic, Dell SecureWorks, Dell KACE, Dell Compellent and Force10 will sponsor this event. There will be a short presentation to provide a brief overview of the Dell and Force10 offerings, and then attendees and sponsors will have time to enjoy the game and discuss business needs in-depth.
Additionally, due to the overwhelming popularity of their first happy hour event earlier this year, Abacus has decided to sponsor a second happy hour event on September 14th. Nineteen of Abacus’ key partners will be joining Abacus as sponsors for this event.
Like the first happy hour, this will be a business networking opportunity for members of the IT community in the Atlanta area. Attendees will have the chance to meet engineers and executives from several leading IT providers. The open networking environment allows attendees to focus their attention on the solutions, services and products that most interest them.
